BalaSole Dance Company is currently seeking high-calibered male and female solo dance artists (of all shapes, sizes, ages, ethnicities, styles and backgrounds) to perform their 3 to 4-minute self-choreographed solo pieces, as well as BalaSole's collaborative ensemble pieces, for its 2018 NYC Concert Season at the Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater in New York City on August 17 & 18, 2018.

BalaSole Dance Company is especially looking for unique and uplifting pieces/solos for its NYC concert seasons. 


The first part of the audition will involve learning a short group combination.  The second part will involve presentations of self-choreographed solo pieces (3-4 minutes MAXIMUM) to be performed in the company's 2018 NYC Concert Season.  Please bring your costume and music, and DO NOT attend the above audition if your solo is unfinished.  During the audition, emphasis will be given to artistry.  An advanced proficiency in either modern, contemporary, jazz, or ballet is required.

Artists who are not selected as soloists at the audition have another opportunity to perform in BalaSole's ensemble pieces as part of the company's Emerging & Re-Emerging Artist Program.  BalaSole's Emerging & Re-Emerging Artist Program is a non-paid performance opportunity that provides artists professional experience and visibility at a prominent NYC dance venue.

Because of limited space, advance registration is mandatory and will be held at a first-come, first-served basis.  Please complete, sign, and send your registration form by email (info@balasoledance.org).  CLICK HERE to access the REGISTRATION FORM.  Upon registration, send an electronic copy of your head shot, dance shot, bio, and résumé to info@balasoledance.org.
